Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council, said: “Our position on Heathrow Airport remains, as it has always been, that we’d like to see a better not bigger airport. 

“The government’s recommended expansion at Heathrow will have a huge impact on the residents and businesses of Hounslow. The Council wants to ensure that issues of noise, pollution and additional congestion are properly addressed. 

"This Department of Transport consultation is an important step towards a final decision and I strongly urge all Hounslow residents and businesses to make sure they have their say online.

“Have a look at all the information and put your views across by next Tuesday. The consultation is open to everyone and we want to ensure voices from our borough are heard.”
